Subject: [PATCH 2/4] xfrm/compat: memset(0) 64-bit padding at right place

From: Dmitry Safonov <>

32-bit messages translated by xfrm_compat can have attributes attached.
For all, but XFRMA_SA, XFRMA_POLICY the size of payload is the same
in 32-bit UABI and 64-bit UABI. For XFRMA_SA (struct xfrm_usersa_info)
and XFRMA_POLICY (struct xfrm_userpolicy_info) it's only tail-padding
that is present in 64-bit payload, but not in 32-bit.
The proper size for destination nlattr is already calculated by
xfrm_user_rcv_calculate_len64() and allocated with kvmalloc().

xfrm_attr_cpy32() copies 32-bit copy_len into 64-bit attribute
translated payload, zero-filling possible padding for SA/POLICY.
Due to a typo, *pos already has 64-bit payload size, in a result next
memset(0) is called on the memory after the translated attribute, not on
the tail-padding of it.
